It is exciting to see the progress and the excitement around the TeenFlight hangar on Saturdays. The TeenFlight 3 crew is really getting into the build. The mentors divided the students into four teams: Purple, Red, Green, and Blue. Each of these teams consists of three or four students. The teams have mentors that work directly with them on their individual projects. Because the fuselage kit has so many different facets to it, each team has its own project to work on. These small projects will eventually join together as the fuselage of the airplane.
The blue team continued on the forward lower fuselage section of the fuselage kit.
Teams Green and Purple spent their time preparing seat ribs, baggage ribs, the forward cabin bulkhead, and other small assemblies.
Team Red finished the center section and began attaching the baggage ribs and floors to the center section.
